YOGA CLASSES IN PORTISHEAD
Everyone is welcome, regardless of your size, shape, level of fitness or whether you have ever tried yoga before. Yoga should be a wonderfully empowering and, above all, an accessible experience for everyone. Classes are designed and adapted to suit all needs, whether you are a total novice or a more experienced student.
You will be supported to develop your practice step-by-step and encouraged to explore challenges suitable for the level you are currently at. Our approach is very much 'individual' and tailored to your particular needs. With this tailored approach each participant is able to achieve maximum benefits and build up their practice week-by-week.
What To Expect In Class:
The classes are slow, flowing and closely linked to your breath. At the beginning of the class you will be encouraged to set your intention. This simply means bringing your attention to a quality that you would like to emulate for your time on, and off, the mat. That quality could be gratitude, strength, awareness of breath – whatever you want to cultivate.
You will learn how to work with a breath-centred practice and develop a mindful approach to practising yoga. The majority of the class will be based mainly around the practice of asana (postures). We will also practise the ancient art of pranayama, the practice of breath control which lies at the heart of yoga. We will focus on a few commonly practised breathing techniques which are known to instantly calm and revitalise the mind and body.
We advise students not to take part in any of our classes without seeking medical advice if they have any concerns at all over their physical health. Anyone with low or high blood pressure or cardiovascular irregularities should not attend class without express and written permission from a doctor.
Women who are 14+ weeks pregnant are welcome to join a pregnancy yoga class but not a regular yoga class.
You can simply bring cash on the day. If you would prefer to make a cashless payment please contact me in advance of your class for my bank details. Class passes are available, please email me for details.
